Closing Out 2010

Although I didn't accomplish all the goals I had set for 2010 (not from lack of effort), I did accomplish most. More importantly, I accomplished more from a personal growth standpoint then all my years combined.  I addressed a lot of fears (that had been holding me back) and took a ton of ballsy yet calculated risks that I'm confident will pay dividends in 2011 and beyond.  I had a great balance between work, "projects", and social life (a lot of sacrifice as well as a ton of fun).  I can hold my head high knowing I did everything in my power to grow spiritually and  financially. I'm especially excited about everything I have in store for 2011.

A Real Woman

A real woman is a man's best friend.  She will  never stand him up and never let him down.  She will reassure him when he feels insecure  and comfort him after a bad day.  She will inspire him to do things he never thought he could do; to live without fear and forget regret.

She will enable him to express his deepest emotions and give in to his most intimate desires. She will make sure he always feels as though he's the most  handsome man in the room and will enable him to be the most confident, sexy, seductive and invincible...

No wait... sorry.. I'm thinking of whiskey.  It’s whiskey that does all that stuff.  Never mind.
